On July 7, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that Florida’s state of emergency will be extended for another 60 days.
The original state of emergency in Florida came about in March when COVID-19 first started to have an impact on the state. The governor extended the order once before in May, and with the new rise in COVID-19 cases in Florida, it is being extended once again for another 60 days.
